Guys, Octavian and other mods I won't mention are not treating me like the delicate, special snowflake that I am. I urge you to demand that they do.

I eat cakes.

For breakfast, lunch and dinner!

I say we divide that Legomancer cake evenly between admins and us, non-special snowflakes goo

Wow, way to belittle people's legitimate complaints and build confidence in impartial moderation.

Nicely done.

Great deity-one-chooses-to-blaspheme, Dave!!! Snowflakes are dime a dozen in your neck of the woods this time of year. What you should you expect but to be but plowed under, shoveled in a pile and baptized by the local canines?

People's legitimate complaints my ass... When people start behaving like grown-ups rather than prancing children, I am all for legitimate complaints and requests.

(Sorry, nothing personal Elstree, it is not you who I have in mind.)

I was sure there was a microbadge for that... mb Oh wait, you want an exclusive, don't you? Don't worry, every snowflake is unique! You just have to look really, really "Close".

Okay, I'll quit with the puns now. Back to yer regularly scheduled whining...

No offense taken. Note that my previous comment was based on the assumption (inferred from Skelebone's subsequent comment in the thread) that the OP is an unbadged moderator. I thought (and still do think, if Legomancer be a moderator) that it's a totally inappropriate attitude for a moderator to express.

For what it's worth, I believe I found the thread that sparked the OP's post, and I personally agree that the guy who started that thread is purposefully pushing people's buttons. Nonetheless, as a matter of principle I think that mods should maintain the public impression that all complaints, no matter how patience-trying, will be treated seriously and fairly, not that they will be dismissed as childish whining.

You should note that, in certain parts of the country these days, snowflakes are running a little low on popular opinion polls.

Oops, not what I intended to imply. What I actually meant was that the users that have the BGG Admin badge are properly titled as admins, and administrate the data on the site. The term is often mixed with moderators or mods, which is what users do with BGG data, as in ImageMod.

Also, there was some tongue-in-cheek humor there as well.

Edited because I know damn well that I must imply before you can infer.

What you do not know is the fact that Legomancer has been named Final Arbiter of Taste & Justice as of Jan 1st, thus ending God's lengthy search for someone to straighten this World. Legomancer will have final say on every known subject, including who should hold office, what clothes everyone should wear, what movies suck, whether bald men who grow ponytails should still get laid and how internet forum complainers should be treated. I, for one, support his selection to this post.

So will Dave be telling us what is and isn't ART from now on, or is that a separate position that you'll be retaining?

He can consult me if he wants, but I think he's got a solid grasp.

Besides, my "it is art, stupid... don't ask questions" comments were entirely there to get the panties in a bunch by those that actually responded to them. I phrased them as a preemptive attack on stupidity to see who would respond. Sorry, sounds mean... and it was... but it was kind of performance art on its own, so all is fair.
